I believe he said his injury was making setup more difficult and that he can't get leaned over all the way on his injured ankle side. AND that they went the wrong way on setup in QP.

Between those lines, it may well be a tough race for him. However, he has the bike so with a bit of grit and some good meds, I doubt he will be far behind.

yep bike problems and he finds that when he needs to get far forward to weight the front the stop the wheelies his ankle wont bend enough so he has to pull himslef forward with his arms(which although he didnt say) may aggravate the arm pump thing

Ugh. Looks like the radiation may have affected a large number of the umbrella girls.

Fuck the bastard that figured Cal's fuel load.
Surely Cal wanted more fuel than he received.
God damn it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously? I thought this one was on him himself..

Best performance of the weekend must be MArquez, coming back after that start. It'll be good to get some heat in the premier class next year, I hope he won't be mobbed by the whiners like SuperSic was. For once the Moto2&3 races were (almost) as anemic as the GP.

Never would have guessed he'd be felled by brake failure. Carbon brakes? Two laps? His third season using them? I do not understand this.

Pretty sure Ben is counting the days till his contract is up, as are Yamaha execs.

The team stated they saw nothing unusual in the data.

Marquez may not be loved by everyone, and he does sometimes give good reasons for that.. But oh boy, what a display of total dominance. From nearly last to first.. there just ain't no other moto2 rider, who can do that. Actually saw him once do it in 125, too.

And the on board vid of him slicing through the pack was breathtaking. I don't know if it was courageous or total lunacy. Looked like a video game.

Honestly, I've had it with this shit!
There is no place for fuel limiting dnf's in racing.
Fuck Dorna in the ass. They have seen the last cent from my pocket.
Ezpeleta can rot in hell.

He took a racing series and turned it into a fucking sideshow.

What's next? No more finish line, instead a panel of celebrity judges will decide who is # 1?

No doubt! I watched it 3 times in a row.

And that last lap in Moto3, I gotta wonder if riding like that happened in the MotoGP class, how many people would cry and point fingers and how many penalties would get handed out?
